Mark 12

CEB 1 Jesus spoke to them in parables. “A man planted a vineyard, put a fence around it, dug a pit for the winepress, and built a tower. Then he rented it to tenant farmers and took a trip. NRS 1 Then he began to speak to them in parables. "A man planted a vineyard, put a fence around it, dug a pit for the wine press, and built a watchtower; then he leased it to tenants and went to another country. CEB 2 When it was time, he sent a servant to collect from the tenants his share of the fruit of the vineyard. NRS 2 When the season came, he sent a slave to the tenants to collect from them his share of the produce of the vineyard. CEB 3 But they grabbed the servant, beat him, and sent him away empty-handed. NRS 3 But they seized him, and beat him, and sent him away empty-handed. CEB 4 Again the landowner sent another servant to them, but they struck him on the head and treated him disgracefully. NRS 4 And again he sent another slave to them; this one they beat over the head and insulted. CEB 5 He sent another one; that one they killed. The landlord sent many other servants, but the tenants beat some and killed others. NRS 5 Then he sent another, and that one they killed. And so it was with many others; some they beat, and others they killed. CEB 6 Now the landowner had one son whom he loved dearly. He sent him last, thinking, They will respect my son. NRS 6 He had still one other, a beloved son. Finally he sent him to them, saying, "They will respect my son.' CEB 7 But those tenant farmers said to each other, ‘This is the heir. Let's kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.' NRS 7 But those tenants said to one another, "This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.' CEB 8 They grabbed him, killed him, and threw him out of the vineyard. NRS 8 So they seized him, killed him, and threw him out of the vineyard. CEB 9 "So what will the owner of the vineyard do? He will come and destroy those tenants and give the vineyard to others. NRS 9 What then will the owner of the vineyard do? He will come and destroy the tenants and give the vineyard to others. CEB 10 Haven't you read this scripture, The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. NRS 10 Have you not read this scripture: "The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; CEB 11 The Lord has done this, and it's amazing in our eyes?" NRS 11 this was the Lord's doing, and it is amazing in our eyes'?" CEB 12 They wanted to arrest Jesus because they knew that he had told the parable against them. But they were afraid of the crowd, so they left him and went away. NRS 12 When they realized that he had told this parable against them, they wanted to arrest him, but they feared the crowd. So they left him and went away. CEB 13 They sent some of the Pharisees and supporters of Herod to trap him in his words. NRS 13 Then they sent to him some Pharisees and some Herodians to trap him in what he said. CEB 14 They came to him and said, "Teacher, we know that you're genuine and you don't worry about what people think. You don't show favoritism but teach God's way as it really is. Does the Law allow people to pay taxes to Caesar or not? Should we pay taxes or not?" NRS 14 And they came and said to him, "Teacher, we know that you are sincere, and show deference to no one; for you do not regard people with partiality, but teach the way of God in accordance with truth. Is it lawful to pay taxes to the emperor, or not? CEB 15 Since Jesus recognized their deceit, he said to them, "Why are you testing me? Bring me a coin. Show it to me." NRS 15 Should we pay them, or should we not?" But knowing their hypocrisy, he said to them, "Why are you putting me to the test? Bring me a denarius and let me see it." CEB 16 And they brought one. He said to them, "Whose image and inscription is this?" NRS 16 And they brought one. Then he said to them, "Whose head is this, and whose title?" They answered, "The emperor's." CEB 17 "Caesar's," they replied.Jesus said to them, "Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God." His reply left them overcome with wonder. NRS 17 Jesus said to them, "Give to the emperor the things that are the emperor's, and to God the things that are God's." And they were utterly amazed at him. CEB 18 Sadducees, who deny that there is a resurrection, came to Jesus and asked, NRS 18 Some Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to him and asked him a question, saying, CEB 19 "Teacher, Moses wrote for us that if a man's brother dies, leaving a widow but no children, the brother must marry the widow and raise up children for his brother. NRS 19 "Teacher, Moses wrote for us that if a man's brother dies, leaving a wife but no child, the man shall marry the widow and raise up children for his brother. CEB 20 Now there were seven brothers. The first one married a woman; when he died, he left no children. NRS 20 There were seven brothers; the first married and, when he died, left no children; CEB 21 The second married her and died without leaving any children. The third did the same. NRS 21 and the second married the widow and died, leaving no children; and the third likewise; CEB 22 None of the seven left any children. Finally, the woman died. NRS 22 none of the seven left children. Last of all the woman herself died. CEB 23 At the resurrection, when they all rise up, whose wife will she be? All seven were married to her." NRS 23 In the resurrection whose wife will she be? For the seven had married her." CEB 24 Jesus said to them, "Isn't this the reason you are wrong, because you don't know either the scriptures or God's power? NRS 24 Jesus said to them, "Is not this the reason you are wrong, that you know neither the scriptures nor the power of God? CEB 25 When people rise from the dead, they won't marry nor will they be given in marriage. Instead, they will be like God's angels. NRS 25 For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven. CEB 26 As for the resurrection from the dead, haven't you read in the scroll from Moses, in the passage about the burning bush, how God said to Moses, I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? NRS 26 And as for the dead being raised, have you not read in the book of Moses, in the story about the bush, how God said to him, "I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'? CEB 27 He isn't the God of the dead but of the living. You are seriously mistaken." NRS 27 He is God not of the dead, but of the living; you are quite wrong." CEB 28 One of the legal experts heard their dispute and saw how well Jesus answered them. He came over and asked him, "Which commandment is the most important of all?" NRS 28 One of the scribes came near and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, he asked him, "Which commandment is the first of all?" CEB 29 Jesus replied, "The most important one is Israel, listen! Our God is the one Lord, NRS 29 Jesus answered, "The first is, "Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God, the Lord is one; CEB 30 and you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your being, with all your mind, and with all your strength. NRS 30 you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.' CEB 31 The second is this, You will love your neighbor as yourself. No other commandment is greater than these." NRS 31 The second is this, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these." CEB 32 The legal expert said to him, "Well said, Teacher. You have truthfully said that God is one and there is no other besides him. NRS 32 Then the scribe said to him, "You are right, Teacher; you have truly said that "he is one, and besides him there is no other'; CEB 33 And to love God with all of the heart, a full understanding, and all of one's strength, and to love one's neighbor as oneself is much more important than all kinds of entirely burned offerings and sacrifices." NRS 33 and "to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the strength,' and "to love one's neighbor as oneself,'—this is much more important than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices." CEB 34 When Jesus saw that he had answered with wisdom, he said to him, "You aren't far from God's kingdom." After that, no one dared to ask him any more questions. NRS 34 When Jesus saw that he answered wisely, he said to him, "You are not far from the kingdom of God." After that no one dared to ask him any question. CEB 35 While Jesus was teaching in the temple, he said, "Why do the legal experts say that the Christ is David's son? NRS 35 While Jesus was teaching in the temple, he said, "How can the scribes say that the Messiah is the son of David? CEB 36 David himself, inspired by the Holy Spirit, said, The Lord said to my lord, ‘Sit at my right side until I turn your enemies into your footstool.' NRS 36 David himself, by the Holy Spirit, declared, "The Lord said to my Lord, "Sit at my right hand, until I put your enemies under your feet." ' CEB 37 David himself calls him ‘Lord,' so how can he be David's son?" The large crowd listened to him with delight. NRS 37 David himself calls him Lord; so how can he be his son?" And the large crowd was listening to him with delight. CEB 38 As he was teaching, he said, "Watch out for the legal experts. They like to walk around in long robes. They want to be greeted with honor in the markets. NRS 38 As he taught, he said, "Beware of the scribes, who like to walk around in long robes, and to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces, CEB 39 They long for places of honor in the synagogues and at banquets. NRS 39 and to have the best seats in the synagogues and places of honor at banquets! CEB 40 They are the ones who cheat widows out of their homes, and to show off they say long prayers. They will be judged most harshly." NRS 40 They devour widows' houses and for the sake of appearance say long prayers. They will receive the greater condemnation." CEB 41 Jesus sat across from the collection box for the temple treasury and observed how the crowd gave their money. Many rich people were throwing in lots of money. NRS 41 He sat down opposite the treasury, and watched the crowd putting money into the treasury. Many rich people put in large sums. CEB 42 One poor widow came forward and put in two small copper coins worth a penny. NRS 42 A poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which are worth a penny. CEB 43 Jesus called his disciples to him and said, "I assure you that this poor widow has put in more than everyone who's been putting money in the treasury. NRS 43 Then he called his disciples and said to them, "Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the treasury. CEB 44 All of them are giving out of their spare change. But she from her hopeless poverty has given everything she had, even what she needed to live on." NRS 44 For all of them have contributed out of their abundance; but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on."
